Data Sources

OpenStreetMap nodes tagged with emergancy=defibrillator are imported into this tool, with the data being refreshed roughly weekly. The last update from OSM was at 2023‑06‑04 11:11:23 Z.

Most of the UK's NHS Ambulance Services maintain lists of publicly available defibrillators, so they can direct 999 callers to them in an emergency. Some services make these list available, others have been requested using FOI legislation. Details of the data currently included in my tools are listed in the table below.
